Wait until they finally inspect Osborne Steps properly.
They will be closed for a VERY LONG TIME.
there was ‘ground movement’ there last year which fractured a sewer pipe which resulted in them being closed for quite a while before and whilst repairs were made.
Part of the retaining ‘wall’ part way down the steps has fallen away (they have put up barrier fencing in the so-called picnic area to keep people away).
The stone wall in several places down the steps is bulging, and yet, what have they done in the way of remedial action? NOTHING!


Because it is currently not an issue?????
